Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

The spectacular 1996 Barolo Cannubi Boschis offers aromas of cassis, cherry liqueur, and flowers. It is dense, superb, full-bodied, with fabulous intensity as well as layers of extract. Muscular, concentrated, broad, and powerful, it demands 5-6 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020.

Wine Spectator

Dark ruby color, with dried porcini and plum and a hint of peach on the nose. Full-bodied, with superpolished tannins and raspberry, coffee bean and licorice character. It goes on and on. Still needs a few years of bottle age.--1998 Piedmont blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2010. 1,060 cases made.

Antonio Galloni

Luciano Sandrone’s 1996 Barolo Cannubi Boschis was more open and accessible. Next to these more traditional Barolos and Barbarescos the fruit and oak were a bit of shock to the palate, but the wine was nevertheless beautiful for its delineation, detail and sense of harmony.
